Why one of Hanuman’s names is ‘Flying Monkey’

This is a delightful video to wile away a few minutes on a Tuesday, a day devoted to Hanuman.

If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, scroll through but make sure you stop around the 4:30 mark, the 7:00 mark and the 19:00 mark (the latter two to get a sense of his flying). As of my posting, there’s only been one view.

Hanuman in the Ramayana performs several amazing feats involving his flying: his leap to Lanka to find Sita and his flight to and from the Himalayas to find the herbs to heal Lakshman, Rama’s brother.

Jai Hanuman!
